GOOD MORNING! SHALL WE LOOK AT SOME PRETTY UNDERWEAR WHILE WE ARE INCANDESCENT WITH RAGE ABOUT WHAT THE GOP IS DOING TO OUR COUNTRY? AND OUR HEALTHCARE?? AND OUR BODILY AUTONOMY??? AFTER THEY DELAYED A SUPREME COURT VOTE FOR NEARLY A YEAR???!! SOUNDS GOOD!!
Hi! Everything is terrible! Here are some piles of underwear with vaguely Japanese prints and more lace than I would ever have dreamed I’d be wearing three months ago!
There’s something to be said for the small focus of lingerie sewing–especially with lace, which needs extra attention. There’s something to be said for practice, too, since I think this batch is my best yet in terms of finish.
The Spoonflower print bras are Cloth Habit Watsons, the orange lace bra is the Studio Costura Mara, and the pink lace bralette is my first attempt at the Hanna, also from Studio Costura. (All the undies are my current favorite giant undies, the Noelle from Madalynne.)
Laces came from a grab bag from Tailor Made Shop and from Queen Lace Studio. Orange findings were from Bra Builders (before they changed up their colors) and the narrow lace trim on the black print undies came from Surge Fabric Shop.
Small soothing details: Findings that match perfectly ,tiny flowers in the lace.
Deep breaths: Perfectly mirrored fronts and a strap that shows off that extravagant scalloped edge. (Studio Costura patterns continue to be great–this fit fine but next time I make it I will use a more supportive lining than bamboo jersey.)
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed these pictures of my crafts while the country is literally and figuratively on fire. I’m putting my hopes in the youth and in AOC and in the fact we’re all gonna vote to fix this. Right?
